problem #1

May 182004

Silverado 2500

  • 9,000 miles
The vehicle has problems shifting from first to second gear. Sometimes the gears change smoothly, and other times there is a thumping sound accompanied by jerking. This problem has occurred at least four times in the last month. In addition when making the transition from a low speed to a higher speed the vehicle's transmission would not engage into the proper gear. This made it seem like the vehicle was in neutral. The dealer fixed the problem with a retrofit kit and the vehicle seems to be working fine. The vehicle's cd player was not functioning properly. The dealer replaced and reprogrammed the cd player.
